HumaneK9 Dog Training
Just like humans need to exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle so do our dogs. Canine fitness exercises are a great way to help your dog live a happier and healthier life, while at the same time strengthening the dog’s behavior, confidence, focus, body awareness, and key muscle groups. Most dogs really enjoy fitness programs and find them super fun, mentally and physically challenging.
Foundation class: No previous experience needed. All levels welcome.
**Please advise us if you or your dog has any medical conditions prior to registering for this class**
Prerequisite: Basic Obedience
Dogs must be non-aggressive towards people and other dogs and must be in good health.
